Recipe: Shrimp Apple Salad with Avocado Salad Dressing

Today, you get two recipes in one… first is the amazing Avocado Salad Dressing. Secondly, you get the actual recipe for this yummy salad with shrimp and apples! My 6-year old said he “loves salad” after eating this meal. The shrimp even had a bit of spice on it, and he still loved it!!

Ingredients for Avocado Salad Dressing:

1 avocado, mashed
1/3 – 1/2 cup coconut milk cream (canned is the best consistency)
A splash of apple cider vinegar
A splash or two of olive oil
A pinch of sea salt or Herbamare
A dash of onion powder
A pinch or two of dried basil

Mix all ingredients together with a whisk. You may need to add more coconut milk or olive oil as you mix, depending on the thickness you want. The avocado adds a lot of thickness, so that’s why there are so many “splashes” in the recipe. (***Just don’t overdo the vinegar or that’s what the whole thing will taste like because it will overpower all the other flavors if you add too much!)

Enjoy my favorite salad dressing!!

Ingredients for Shrimp Apple Salad:

1 pound of raw, peeled shrimp for 4 people
Old Bay Seasoning
2 organic, red apples
Several leaves of organic bib lettuce
Several leaves of organic romaine lettuce

Steam shrimp over boiling water for just a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until pink. As they cook, shake several dashes of Old Bay Seasoning into the steam pot. Slice apples into bite-size pieces. Rinse and dry lettuce leaves and tear into bite-size pieces. Layer on plates… lettuce first, apples next, topped with shrimp. Add preferred dressing (awesome with dressing above) and enjoy!
